Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Bruce and Co. are delighted to offer to the market this unique and well renowned cafe located in the coastal town of Bo’ness. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to their impending retirement. Since our clients took ownership of the business 17 years ago
they have continually developed and improved the business, which shows in the year on year increase in turnover and profitability. Our clients inform us that weekly turnover currently runs at £3000 per week which is derived from take away sales and a popular hot & cold food menu
as well as a selection of ice creams. This could be significantly increased by introducing new marketing strategies such as mail shot or further advertising as well as the introduction of new products. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade.

The expanding town of Bo'ness has amenities to meet every day needs, including schools at both primary and secondary levels located within walking distance. Attractions in the town include the Bo'ness & Kinneil Railway, Kinneil House, Hippodrome art deco cinema and Antonine wall. Bo'ness is also ideally placed for the commuter with major access roads allowing ease of movement out with the area. It is also worth noting the proximity to Linlithgow, which provides additional shopping and recreational facilities and a railway station with regular services to Edinburgh, Glasgow and beyond.
